Recording a narrative verdict, the coroner concluded that there was a clear link between Lee Bonsall's tour of duty in Afghanistan and subsequent mental health difficulties.
The inquest heard the 24-year-old asked to be discharged from the army in October 2006 but was not assessed until May 2007. He was subsequently discharged in September 2007.
Coroner Mark Layton said he proposed a narrative conclusion as he was not satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that Mr Bonsall's death can be recorded as a suicide.
